A Walk Back in Time

Yesterday we all went to Fort William Historical Park. THis is a reconstruction of the fur trade era settlement in the area (which served as a headquarters and the junction point between head office in Montreal and the traders in the West).

At a different point in my life I would likely provide a reflection on where we have come from but now I see the sights as much through the girls eyes as through those of the amateur historian within me. ANd in some ways that is better. Seeing the wonder of the girls as they look at the interpreters and the farm animals. Watching them listen wide-eyed to what is happening around them. That adds to the experience.
